The tropics are waking up after an abnormally quiet stretch from mid July through late August. Storm Team 12 is now tracking two potential systems that look to likely develop over the next few days.
The first is off the Florida coastline. It is expected to slowly strengthen, but move away from shore. Significant impacts or landfall in the US do not seem likely right now. The second is down over the Central Atlantic. This system will slowly strengthen as it moves westwards toward the Caribbean.
The next two names for the tropical season are “Dorian” and “Erin.’ We will continue to update you on these two tropical systems. Stay with Storm Team 12 for tropical coverage all hurricane season.
